On My Travels: A Walk Around Wynwood #Miami #Florida #Foodtravel

Truth be told I had not planned much time in Miami.  The high rises and gritty crime scenes in many a movie and TV show really didn’t leave me wanting to spend time in the city.  For us it was a convenient stop down from Orlando to Key West and so we’d…
